First Person Gets Experimental Coronavirus Vaccine

    U.S. researchers gave the first shots in a first test of an experimental coronavirus vaccine Monday, leading off a worldwide hunt for protection even as the pandemic surges.

    With careful jabs in the arms of four healthy volunteers, scientists at the Kaiser Permanente Washington Research Institute in Seattle began an anxiously awaited first-stage study of a potential COVID-19 vaccine developed in record time after the new virus exploded out of China and fanned out across the globe.

    "We're team coronavirus now," Kaiser Permanente study leader Dr. Lisa Jackson said on the eve of the experiment. "Everyone wants to do what they can in this emergency."

    The Associated Press observed as the study's first participant, an operations manager at a small tech company, received the injection in an exam room.

    "We all feel so helpless. This is an amazing opportunity for me to do something," Jennifer Haller, 43, of Seattle said before getting vaccinated. Her two teenagers "think it's cool" that she's taking part in the study. After the injection, she left the exam room with a big smile: ''I'm feeling great."

    Three others were next in line for a test that will ultimately give 45 volunteers two doses, a month apart.

    Neal Browning, 46, of BothelL Washington, is a Microsoft network engineer who says his young daughters are proud he volunteered.

    "Every parent wants their children to look up to them," he said But he's told them not to brag to their friends. "It's other people, too. It's hot just Dad out there."

    Monday's milestone marked just the beginning of a series of studies in people needed to prove whether the shots are safe and could work. Even if the research goes well a vaccine would not be available for widespread use for 12 to 18 months, said Dr. Anthony Fauci of the U.S. National Institutes of Health.

    At a news conference, U.S. President Donald Trump praised how quickly the research had progressed Fauci noted that 65 days have passed since Chinese scientists shared the virus' genetic sequence. He said he believed that was a record for developing a vaccine to test.

    This vaccine candidate, code-named mRNA-1273, was developed by the NIH and Massachusetts-based biotechnology company Moderna Inc. There are no chance participants could get infected because the shots do not contain the coronavirus itself.

    It's not the only potential vaccine in the pipeline. Dozens of research groups around the world are racing to create a vaccine against COVID-19. Another candidate, made by Inovio Pharmaceuticals, is expected to begin its safety study next month in the U.S., China, and South Korea.

    "We don't know whether this vaccine will induce an immune response or whether it will be safe. That's why we're doing a trial" Jackson stressed "It's not at the stage where it would be possible or prudent to give it to the general population."

Paul McCartney's Handwritten "Hey Jude" Lyrics Sell for $910,000

    On the 50th anniversary of The Beatles' breakup, the lyrics to one of the band's most popular songs, "Hey Jude," sold for $910,000 at a New York auction. It was the highest-selling item in the annual Beatle mania auction.

    The lyrics, handwritten by lead vocalist and bassist Paul McCartney, sold for nine times its original estimate on Friday, according to Julien's Auctions. The messy lyric sheet was used when the band recorded the 1968 hit at London's Trident Studios and later gifted to a studio engineer.

    "It's obviously a very iconic song that everyone's familiar with," Julien's Auctions music specialist Jason Watkins told Reuters. "These handwritten lyrics were used in the studio as a guide when they were recording it."

    McCartney wrote the song, originally titled, "Hey Jules" for John Lennon's son Julian to comfort him during the divorce of his parents. It was nominated for Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal at the 1969 GRAMMY Awards.

    The lyrics were just one of more than 250 items of Beatles memorabilia on sale to mark the 50th anniversary of the band's historic breakup, including guitars and other instruments, rare vinyl and other autographed items. Another top item, a bass drumhead with the band's logo from its 1964 North American tour sold for $200,000 and John Lennon and Yoko Ono's "BAGISM" drawing sold for $93,750.

    The original stage from the concert venue Lathom Hall in Seaforth, Liverpool England, where The Beatles had their first advertised gig sold for $25,000.

    The auction was set to take place at the Hard Rock Cafe New York City but was moved online due to the coronavirus pandemic.
